That, or someone annoyed and pestered them enough. It probably didn't make anyone at their firm feel any better when I publicly pointed out on a subreddit that was dedicated to them that NVidia, Mesa, and Intel all never had this problem.

The pestering surely would help putting some pressure on them.
But as a developer I can tell you that "software xyz does not work" is a lot less likely to get resolved quickly than someone saying "the compiler optimizes everything out that gets referenced by feature abc." The first one will require extensive debugging but the second one is concrete enough that it may get solved in a few minutes rather than days.

That is very true. I have first hand experience enough with that to fully agree, there.

That's a link to my post. I'm fairly certain that you can reach the rest of the subreddit from there.

AMD are generally on top of driver updates. At times faster than Nvidia even. I'm glad that this didn't fall through the cracks though. Well done everyone and AMD.

Yes, several people have already confirmed in several places that the latest driver is ok.
